After over 80 episodes, Fan Bingbing‘s Wu Zetian finally becomes The Empress of China to Aarif Lee‘s Emperor. The outfits were apparently so heavy that Aarif Lee couldn’t say his lines after climbing the stairs. He’s lucky, because Fan Bingbing still has to become the Heavenly Empress and the Empress Regent, each of whose costumes are even more elaborate and heavy. Some photos from the extravagant scene (episode 85 and highly recommended, complete with a gold tree) below the cut.
Zhang Jane@YouTube was even kind enough to put up a cut of it, so you really have no excuse to not watch it.
